Spark::red, a premier Oracle ATG Commerce-managed hosting provider with data centers all over the world and clients in the United States, Europe and Africa, has released Oracle Database and Endeca MDEX plugins for New Relic. The new plugins are now available to the general public for free:
The plugins capture performance metrics for Oracle Database and Endeca and display them in New Relic APM.
